SOLTECH Promotes Health Initiative to Employees
SOLTECH, an Atlanta-based developer of custom software solutions, has launched a company wide health and wellness initiative for Twenty-Ten.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, approximately two thirds of U.S. adults and one fifth of U.S. children are obese or overweight. During 1980–2004, obesity prevalence among U.S. adults doubled.
As obesity continues to be a problem in the United States, SOLTECH is doing their part to create a campaign to educate their employees about the importance of healthy eating and leading active lifestyles. The campaign was started with the kick-off of “The 210 Club.” This club incentivizes employees to climb the 210 stairs between the first floor and their 11th floor office each day instead of taking the elevator. The basic concept is to give employees the opportunity to get up and exercise a small amount during the work day.
“Quality of life has been a key cornerstone of SOLTECH’s culture since we began in 1998. With the launch of our health and wellness program, I believe that our employees will benefit from the team-oriented approach to leading a more healthy and active lifestyle”, said Veanne Smith, Vice President and Co-founder of SOLTECH .
“The 210 Club” is just the start of SOLTECH’s company wide health initiative and in the coming months they plan to expand the concept to include additional activities such as a 5K run, company softball team, and more.
